12 April 2019 - A water main that supplies water to offices and properties along Ranolf Street between Hinemoa and Eruera Streets has been repaired and the water is back on.

The problem was reported to Council just after 3 o'clock this morning and the Infracore on-call officer arrived at the scene about 20 minutes later to check what the issue was on Ranolf Street.

The officer made sure the site, where a large tomo on the roadside had appeared, was safe before shutting down the main. 

Water from the hole was pumped out this morning before Infracore staff found a split in the water main pipeline which needed to be excavated and four meters of piping replaced before the water supply was turned back on at 12:30pm.
